Reviews for the Asus TUF FX505DT-EB73
As it turns out, mid-range Nvidia GPUs pair very well with AMD's latest Ryzen H-series of CPUs. Asus is doubling down on even more Intel-less gaming laptops that gamers on tight budgets ought to consider.
This low cost Asus laptop combines a Ryzen CPU and a Nvidia GTX 1650 GPU ! It also has a 120hz 1080p IPS display.

ASUS TUF Gaming FX505 is a good all-around gaming device. To be honest, it doesn’t offer anything special against the competition which in this class is pretty severe. This device’s main advantage is its price. However, this has hit the build quality of the product since they are some squeaks when compressing the body with your hands. In this aspect, the MSI GP63 Leopard 8RD feels better, even though it doesn’t have the best build quality either.

The Asus TUF Gaming FX505DT ensures that an essential set of components and features are delivered so that your gaming experience is pleasant. This includes the high-speed PCIe Gen3 SSD storage, discrete graphics card and a full HD display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. It manages to run most of the gaming titles you throw at it comfortably, although at medium to high graphics settings. Having tested and used a few budget gaming laptops myself, I'd always find something or the other amiss in the design. This could be a poorly calibrated display or painfully slow storage. The FX505DT makes none of those mistakes and makes for a very satisfying gaming laptop, especially if you have a budget of Rs 80,000.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.
R7 3750H: Mobile Quad-Core APU using Zen+ cores clocked at 2.3 to 4 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 10 CUs clocked at up to 1400 MHz. The 3750H is the 35 Watt version of the 3700U with the same specs but a higher TDP for better performance under long periods of load.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
